When most people cross-shop cars, they think of practicality first, and that’s clearly wrong. The one thing car enthusiasts have known for decades—the one notion that could save normies from a hum-drum existence—is that you buy for experience value per dollar. With that in mind, I present this Lancer Evolution MR, the…
Meanwhile, in Texas, here’s a Lancer Evolution driving flat out in front of a cow pasture. Moo!
An amusingly modified Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution cools off with its hood up as the Spec Miata field grids up in the background.
Which Evo was best Evo? I was always partial to VII, myself.

Yes, I put a frowny face emoticon in the headline. I apologize for nothing. I am deeply saddened by the current state of Mitsubishi in the U.S. market, as well as the fact that the legendary Lancer Evolution X has no successor in sight, despite wild reports to the contrary over the years. For those of you who would…
Our rally bred hearts have been aching since we heard that this would be the end of the line for Mitsubishi's slidey yobbo machine. But no! Mitsu isn't murdering the rally weapon yet. Keep your eyes open, Subaru.
Two crossovers, an aging sedan, a fairly abysmal subcompact that feels like it's meant only for third world countries, and a legendary rally car now living on borrowed time. That's how things are for Mitsubishi these days. But it wasn't always this way.
In the pantheon of the mightiest four-cylinder engines, surely Mitsubishi's "FQ" Lancer Evolutions stand near or at the top. This series of UK-only special edition Evos were tuned to produce as much as 400 horsepower in Mitsubishi FQ-400 form. Great news, rally hoons! Even more juice is coming.
I've always been a fan of brown cars, but they're hard to pull off correctly. You need to get the shade just right, as it's the difference between "earthy" and "dirty." This highly modified Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution X model uses a matte effect to get the blend down perfectly. Beat that, in your silver Subaru.
Hey, Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution and Subaru WRX! Will you two ever learn to get along, or will they fight like cats and dogs for all eternity? Probably, since 1990s rally rivalries die hard.
What's the deal with the Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution? Does the car have a future at all as its brand continues to flag hard in the North American market? One new rumor says it does — in plug-in electric hybrid form. For real this time.
You there. On a scale of one to Vin Diesel, how fast and furious would you say your life is right now? If you need more of both those things, look no further than this eBay auction for the lime green Mitusbishi Lancer Evolution from 2 Fast 2 Furious.
Can the small town of Owings Mills, Maryland handle the turbocharged fury of one of Japan's greatest rallying legends? We're about to find out in this classic installment of MotorWeek!
The Lancer Evolution Experience starts off like most driving schools: You are plopped in front of a chalkboard and lectured to. After that, you're sent out and made to get wicked sideways. And that's when you wake the hell up.
One Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution owner was understandably surprised when the gas pedal on his nearly new $40,000 car snapped off right under his foot. With just 2000 miles on the clock of his Evo X, the owner claims he was driving "with a little enthusiasm," pressed down on the gas pedal "as I normally would", at which…
AMS claim this is the world's most powerful Evo, and they've got the dyno sheets to back it up. This Mitsubishi monster supposedly makes 1130 HP, and that's not at the flywheel, but at the wheels. And we're told it's "true" power, no nitrous-oxide assistance, just a motor built up big as can be and 51 PSI of boost.…
